I was under the impression that Mono was striving for a .NET
compliant System.Xml (option 2).  Is that correct?

ECMA has about 20 classes defined.  MS has hundreds.  ECMA has
enough to read and write simple documents and process them, but
none of the schema/path/etc stuff.

ECMA compatibility is still useful for us, even if it is limited.
Embedded environments need a stripped-down set of classes, and
since the ECMA set is standardised, it is a good place to start.
